A Garlic Wreath

Hey my friends!

How has your week been? Great, I hope :)

I’m so thankful for the gorgeous weather we’ve had here!

I wanted to share a little wreath I made this week.  It’s a garlic wreath.

Here’s how it turned out.

 

garlic wreath

I used size 18 gauge Steel Wire, along with about 15 heads of garlic…

(5 heads of garlic for 1$ each, and wire already on hand)

wire

I cut the wire about 24 inches long and strung the garlic onto the wire.

I didn’t use every head of garlic, because it was beginning to weigh it down.

I wanted it to hang in a nice little circle, as a wreath.

If you like the smell of garlic, this is a fun little project.

I might try to make a garlic garland next…anyone ever tried this??

A possible sweet little homemade gift for the holidays…

I’m joining these parties :

Farmhouse Friday

Saturday Nite Special

Cute kitchen wreath. If you can find the garlic with the tops still on you can braid them into a garland. Good luck~ xo Diana

You did a DIY post!!!! Love the garlic wreath and I think the garland would be great. No vampires around your place.

Your pictures are always so pretty, my friend. You make me want to do better with mine.

I've been trying to come up with a way to hang garlic so that I can pick it off the hanger when I want to use it. Can't wait to see what you do next.

This is so cute! I bet your house smells wonderful. I have been following you for a few months now and just love your blog. Will you let us know how long it lasts once you have the wreath up for a while?
Keep up the good work!
